Love-In-A-Mist Chocolate and Cream Seeds

Nigella hispanica

Item #1324

Annual. Intriguing, dual-colored, edible blooms on practically care-free plants with lovely, airy foliage. Also known as 'African Bride', 'Chocolate and Cream' will be a dramatic addition to your cut flower arrangements, and the bees will love it in the garden. Interesting, nearly black, papery "lanterns" form after flowers drop. Drought tolerant.
